We use a DJI Phantom 2 Vision Plus to fly around the specified location and to capture video footage and still images. This raw material is then edited to create a short film in accordance with the client’s instructions or handed over to the client in its raw state for processing by themselves or a third party of their choosing. We can also use third party software to create 3D models of structures and locations filmed in this way. Please visit this page for a full list of services we may be able to offer you.
Scope of Work
When you contact us we will listen to your ideas and requirements and advise you on what we can (and cannot) do to fulfill your aerial filming objectives within your expected timescales. Early contact is strongly advised as it gives us more flexibility to plan ahead, taking into account location, season, weather etc. Once the scope of work has been agreed and all the other preliminary arrangements have been made we will arrive at the location on the day of filming in time to make best use of the light. This may mean that we will arrive the day before if an early morning flight is required. We will keep a close eye on any changes in the weather that might adversely affect filming or which might provide an opportunity to film in a better light.
Weather and Timing
Although we will not film when it’s raining (or if there’s any other kind of precipitation) we can film all the year round. In fact, for long distance shots the clear air of winter months can often be an advantage as opposed to the hazy, dusty air of late summer, but there are always opportunities at any time of year. The seasonal changes to the landscape added to the variations in light according to the time of day and the weather mean that the aerial views are constantly changing.
Each location is of course unique and with the additional variables such as season and weather a certain amount of planning and scheduling is required in order to create the best chance of obtaining the results that our clients expect. Safety and legal limits are of paramount importance too so all these factors need to be taken into account. If you decide to use our services we will discuss these and other aspects of the work when you contact us.
